History, charm, good food & glorious views

  • So what's for breakfast?

    An Arcadian breakfast gets away from the cholesterol laden "fry up". The accent is on vivid, fresh flavours, using the best local produce available; where possible organic, spray free and free range.

    There's always freshly squeezed orange juice from a nearby Kerikeri orchard, local fruits according to the season and a selection of cereals including our very popular homemade toasted museli.

    Kerikeri organic teas

    Our cooked breakfast changes daily with the seasons. It could be: fresh asparagus and ham with grilled cheese on focaccia; slow roasted tomatoes on pesto bruschetta with a pork and fennel sausage; kumara, feta and smoked paprika tortilla (spanish style); individual bacon, egg and roast capsicum breakfast pies; bacon, lettuce and tomato on a bagel with a honey mustard dressing; ricotta hot-cakes served with grapes, banana and pure maple syrup; or our take on the traditional french croque monsieur.

    We make our own jams and jellies from the grapefruit, lemons, limes, plums and feijoas in the garden. We also make our own chutneys, sauces and relishes. Our breads are organic and we also offer organic teas and coffees sourced from Kerikeri suppliers.

    Enjoyed on the deck overlooking the water, there's no better way to set you up for a full day out in the bay.
